How to Make Exercise More Fun

Interested in being more active this new year? Here’s the secret: to make exercise more fun, turn it into a social outing. :) You guys know I’m all about this – and as I was looking through my photos from the past week wondering what to share today, I realized a lot of them had one big thing in common: they were social fitness dates!

Ankle-Friendly Workouts + Recent Eats

Hello friends! So, you know what’s really dumb? We did this great rocky/hilly hike on Sunday with no problem, and then, once we’re home, I randomly twist my ankle walking off our back steps. I know.
